Something New!  Something Cool!AMH System at TPL
Try out our new automated check-in system. It’s like a conveyor belt, only smarter. The new system will check in up to 2,500 items per hour. You can use it inside the library or at the new walk-up return outside at the southeast end.

The machine reads the identification tag on the items and sorts them in the correct bin. Patrons have expressed concern about the lag time between the time they return items and the time they are removed from their records. This system will remove the items from patrons’ records faster. They can be reshelved quicker so that other patrons can check them out. 

Tigard is the third library in Washington County to install the system. Watch the video! So far library users of all ages who have used the machines have reacted with one word: “Cool!

Library Materials Will Be Checked In Quicker with Automated System
(July 1, 2015)
You might notice some changes at the Tigard Public Library in July, when the library will complete its installation of a new automated system to check in library materials. Library users will be able to return items directly to the machine, either inside or outside the library. Patrons may still also return items at the drive-up book drops.
 
The biggest change will be a walk-up area in the front of the building at the southeast end. The new system will be able to check in up to 1,200 items an hour, 24 hours a day. The City Council approved the system’s purchase in the 2014–15 budget, to check in and re-shelve items more quickly.

Library Self-checkout Machines Require Passwords
(January 16, 2015)
Library patrons now must use their passwords on the self-check machines. This change will improve library card security by preventing someone from using a lost or stolen card on the machines.  Patrons will use the same password that they use to access their account online. If they have forgotten their password or wish to reset it, they can change it online on their account or ask at the Circulation or Welcome desks.
